Cocktail time

A Certain Tea Brand were running a competition to make recipes using or designed to complement their tea products. One of the categories was for cocktails. I thought – wait a moment, I’ve been drinking that particular flavour tea with gin since winter kicked in, like a particularly girly Hot Toddy. I can totally create a cocktail recipe based on that!

Call it social anxiety, call it minimalism gone mad, but after making the cocktail and photographing it for the competition entry, I reconsidered. I don’t really want to win a competition. I don’t even want to risk winning it. The mere thought makes me need another cocktail. So I decided it’s better to just post the recipe here, where the world at large can benefit from it, and I don’t have to worry about getting a 3-day brand loyalty indoctrination trip to Sri Lanka.


Cupid’s Tea Time

1 measure gin

2 measures Dilmah Rose and French Vanilla tea (brewed for 5 minutes, 2 sugars, then chilled)

2 measures pomegranate juice

Pour into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake well. Decant into a vanilla-sugar rimmed cocktail glass. Garnish with a strawberry.


Cupid's Tea Time ( and return of the Bodum glasses!)
